Unlike the usual Task Inbox which has it's own set of predefined columns, Datalist Inbox Userview Menu enables you to select your own list columns, allowing you to display important values of an item.

This increases productivity and cuts down time wasted clicking and checking each item.


You can configure the Performance settings in this Userview Element to cache existing content for improved performance and loading speed.

Make sure that the "id" of the dataset in the Datalist reflects the Process Instance ID or record ID that can be used to match to the actual assignment.

This is especially important when one is using the JDBC Datalist Database Binder to define its own query.
